Although the monsoon rains have been a daily occurrence in Southwest Colorado, the wildflower season is slow to start. At low altitudes the only flowers I saw were fireweed and daisies. However, at higher altitudes, like Coal Bank pass and Clear Lake Basin, the wilds were just beginning to bloom. The stars of the show so far are Paintbrush and Tall Chiming Bluebells.
